Dan asked McCain how much sports Congress members talk about when they get together.
“A pretty good amount, since all the other issues are so unpleasant,” McCain said.
Dan asked which Senator knows the most about sports. “Southern senators are usually more engaged,” McCain said.
Dan asked which is harder to achieve — winning the Presidency or going to the BCS. “Tougher to change the BCS,” McCain said. “You always got a shot at the presidency.”
Dan asked on a more serious note, who would he have wanted as a running mate. McCain said that he was happy with Sarah Palin and would take her over again. But he mentioned Tom Ridge and Tim Pawlenty.
McCain really wanted to talk about HGH. He said that as a mediocre high school player, he probably would have been tempted to take it. McCain thinks it’s a problem in the NFL because of the effect on younger people.
McCain said Congress should haul players to Washington D.C. to find out why they’re not enforcing an agreement on testing — especially considering the testing has been proven to be accurate. McCain said he’s not in the right committee to affect much change about it other than adding his voice.
McCain talked about how much he respected NFL players.”I look at Larry Fitzgerald as a role model to every young American,” “I bet he would never touch the stuff.”
